CHP’s Mobile Health teams offer the same services as a primary care provider or typical urgent care clinic, making it an excellent alternative for people with transportation challenges. No appointment is necessary for vaccines, testing, wellness checks, referrals, and more .

Participants do not have to be a CHP patient to use this service. In most cases, the visit will be covered by the individual’s insurance. For those who are uninsured or can’t afford to pay, services will be provided free of charge. A sliding fee scale is also available for eligible patients.

The CHP Mobile Health program provides:

  • Same-day urgent care
  • COVID-19 and flu vaccines/testing
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Treatment of minor sickness, infections, and injuries
  • UTI and STI testing and birth control services
  • Wellness checks including food security and nutrition assistance
  • Primary care referrals and health education
  • Family services and WIC
